I suppose in CD format it would reach people who don't buy vinyl. But i think lots of dance music (including dubstep) can sound a bit dry when you hear the tunes in their 5 or 6 minute entireties - they are made for single releases and to be mixed.
I have to dissent...

There should be more albums being made...if every producer was making choons just so they could get mixed in a DJ set then that would be dry.

Memories Of The Future is up there with my favourite albums of any genre. I think it should be every Producer's ambition to complete an Album...I dont really view Memories Of The Future as a bunch of songs on a CD, to me its its one piece of music. This is why albums are great and especially with Dubstep as an album gives artists scope to explore a much wider spectrum as opposed to a 12".

AMEN to THAT

i dont love everything on this but 26 basslines is fucking incredible, and pleasures really good as well. its interesting seeing how Benga's production has sort of stayed the same since the newstep, but just sounds loads cleaner and bigger now.

Dirty number, probably my favourite off the album along with Pleasure.

Pleasure has to be the most consistently underrated tune of the last 12 months!

It's all about that 3rd drop with the 4/4 switch up. :twisted:

I swear i've been listening to this tune for ages now and I still love it the same amount as to when I first heard it. :o
